Those flakes appearing on your shoulders are sometimes the medical result (depending on the nature of the condition) of a skin condition known as seborrheic dermatitis, which is a type of eczema of the face and scalp. It results in red, itchy skin but is best recognized by the scaly flakes of skin that tend to fall from the scalp and out of the hair--the stuff we recognize as dandruff. The condition affects the sebum glands, resulting in dried out skin.
Several herbal remedies and natural treatments can help prevent seborrheic dermatitis, reduce flaking, and minimize scalp irritation. Check out our natural seb derm shampoos and other home remedies below!
In infants Seborrheic Dermatitis is known as cradle cap. Check out Earth Clinic's Cradle Cap remedies here.

[YEA] Amazing results.
I found this website on June 23, just 1 week ago. The same day I started regiment of 2 tablespoons of organic ACV with "The Mother", 1 teaspoon of raw un filtered honey and 8-10 oz of water 3 times a day and once a day rubbing straight ACV right on my problem areas, mostly on my face and in my ears. The results are increarable, in just 3 days my SD that I have been dealing with for 8 years is completely gone!
If anyone is sitting on the fence, please do not wait any longer, start using this today and get your life back.
Thank you all very much!
[YEA] I am 37 yr old female using cortisone creams from 15 yr old on my scalp and face and underarms for SD. Indian and US doctors recommended the same kind of medications for me.
After reading this article, I tried organic ACV for last 5 days and the results are great. My face, behind my ear, underarms are showing much improvement.also my scalp is getting much better and I am keep using it.
I suggest this to all who have SD which is a mental nuisance to all.
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] Hello,
to make a story short, been with S/D for more than 10 years. Tried a lot of things to get rid of it.
I will post a more detailed entry later. After reading this site, I bought ACV with the mother and applied 20 mn ago with a 1:1 ratio (ACV / bottled water). The results seem to be here already concerning the flaking, but when I finished applying it I realized parts of my face were red. The excess mixture of ACV and water ran down my face for a while, while I was applying it on my hair.
My face feels hot on the red parts. Any ideas what may have caused this, and will it last?
Those two links are pics of the red zones on my face right now.
I will post a more detailed history and results later.
